Fishing report: Cap'n Danny

-A A +A
By Danny Allen

Hello everyone, hope all is well and y’all are getting to enjoy the weather this week –  it’s darn close to perfection. The fishing wasn’t far from the same.
The conditions haven’t changed much over the past few weeks – the water temps have risen to high 70s. But, the brown water is still here and not going anywhere soon.
The trout bite has remained good during the temperature change, the fish have ran in the high teens with every trip having fish over 20-inches. The lady fish and jack crevasse have moved inshore – that’s one of the signs that the bait pods will be next and the tarpon and cob should follow. The red fishing has seemed to slip a bit as the tides went slow and low in this moon phase.
I’m hoping as we enter the full moon it will pick back up. All in all, good times in the key on the flats.
I had the privilege to take the Capps family from the Stuart area. They are regular clients of mine with kids at UF and we had a great day of trout fishing this week boating 18 keepers and many shorts.
Guys and girls, children of all ages, if you haven’t ever been on a charter or you did but the experience wasn’t a good one, do yourself a favor and call Southern Salt Charters and go enjoy some of Cedar Keys perfections first hand. Let’s splash some salt on your souls.
